Not so far places… by John Pasmore

Another quick trip out of NYC with Outdoor Bound. This one to Harriman State Park. Getting out of the City is like hitting the reset button, even if for a day.

So the trip details are almost superfluous; was raining, sun came out, guides from Outdoor Bound fantastic, 9 mile hike, and getting to know some folks (or not) on a trail is always a special kind of perfect. The trail, the people and the destination all find a balance depending on where your heads at. Taking a step back to someplace more elemental is always a reminder that there are other places without subways and desks. Longer and farther would be ideal, but I will take what I can get.
